Peace plans are ‘absolutely wrong’ – UK – RT World News

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak says a ceasefire right now will not lead to ‘a just and lasting peace’

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has rejected calls for a ceasefire in Ukraine, saying kyiv should keep fighting for as long as it takes to achieve peace “it is deserved.” UK and US supporters of Ukraine have repeatedly rejected calls for peace.

During a parliamentary session on Monday, former Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn asked Sunak if he agreed with a ceasefire initiative proposed by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and backed by the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and Pope Francis.

Corbyn added that Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said earlier on Monday that “a ceasefire is not a peace” but without one, “this war will go on and get worse and worse.”

“I couldn’t disagree with him more” sunak replied “A ceasefire is not a just and lasting peace for Ukraine. Russia carried out an illegal and unprovoked invasion…and the correct and only response to that is for Russia to withdraw its forces from Ukraine.

“All plans masquerading as plans for peace”, He continued, “are in fact attempts to simply freeze the conflict where it is, are absolutely wrong and must be exposed.”

Sunak’s position is consistent with that of the United States, where Secretary of State Antony Blinken said in December that any ceasefire involving the freezing of battle lines would lead to “a false peace.” At the time, Sunak said a ceasefire would be “completely meaningless” and that the UK would only accept the withdrawal of Russian troops from “conquered territory”.

Ukraine considers the regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye – which voted to join the Russian Federation last year – its territories, and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky has promised to bring all four back under Kyiv’s control. Zelensky also promised to take over Crimea, which voted to join the Russian Federation in 2014.

However, US military officials have publicly stated that recapturing Crimea is beyond Ukraine’s capabilities, and Kiev’s long-awaited spring counteroffensive against Russian forces has so far failed to materialize. . Meanwhile, the Ukrainian army has suffered the destruction of more than two dozen of its brigades in the city of Artyomovsk/Bakhmut since last October, only to lose the city to the private military company Wagner over the weekend. .

Majority of Britons have negative opinion of Sunak – poll

Nevertheless, Sunak told parliament that the Russian forces were “fail on the battlefield”, and declared – as he and US President Joe Biden have done on numerous occasions – that he “Stay by Ukraine’s side for as long as it takes.”
